Jenny Osman's love of food started with watching Two Fat Ladies as a little girl. The catalyst that transformed her love of food into a career choice to be part of the food movement was her experience living and teaching English abroad in Senegal. Witnessing the levels of hunger among her students opened Jenny's eyes to the pitfalls of the American food system at home. 

Jenny has worked in food in positions ranging from line cook, to development of hunger-fighting initiatives, as the former Program Manager of FoodFutureCo and now as the Program Manager of FRESH with the Strategic Investments Group at the New York City Economic Development Corporation.  

She is excited to meet and work with people and organizations who are passionate about improving our economy, environment and community health through food.
